The Kelly Outstanding Teaching Awards recognize core and associate faculty members who are representative of outstanding teaching at Royal Roads. Leading up to the 2019 awards presentation at Campus Conversation on November 27, we will highlight nominees (in alphabetical order) via a special profile on their teaching philosophy.

The first nominee profiled is Geoff Bird.

“Teaching is about taking risks, and over the years, some students may not always immediately understand the significance of something. I am reminded of the need for equanimity, and to balance my expectations with where the students are in their own journey.”

The Kelly Outstanding Teaching Awards are open to all Royal Roads University faculty members who are actively engaged in teaching for-credit or non-credit courses at Royal Roads. A call for nominations is sent out each spring to faculty, staff and students. Learn more about the awards and see past recipients.
